This morning Samyang (named Rokinon in US and Wallimes in EU) announced two new APS-C E-mount lenses. But I just learned through their site that there are actually Cine and Non Cine versions of each lens. And the very first 21mm f/1.4 image samples can be seen at the spanish DSLRmagazine site (shot on X-mount version). For now only the “non-cine” versions can be preordered at BH or Amazon:

This is a good day for APS-C E-mount camera owners. We just got two new lenses from Samyang (Rokinon). The 50mm f/1.2 and 21mm f/1.4! Both are manual focusing lenses and I have o doubt they will be of very good optical quality (as usual with Rokinon). Here are the full specs of the lenses and preorder links to BHphoto:

Sony RX10m2 DJi Ronin M Run Test

Long exposure work with A7s (Mirrorlessons).
Roeschlein-Kreuznach Telenar 90mm f/3.8 (SonyAlphaForum).
Converter lens test at Ascii.jp.
Sony RX100 IV vs Samsung Galaxy S6 – 4k Camera Comparison (Youtube).
Im Praxis-Check: Sony Cybershot DSC-RX10 II (Photoscala).

Maciej Galas:Professional production made entirely with Sony A7R with lenses by Carl Zeiss Sonnar 1.8 55 and Carl Zeiss Sonnar 2.8 35. The film is fun – the whole placement of products from high-end brands – including Calvin Klein, Rosenthal and many others. Black and white picture with high contrast achieved by the special function in A7R – creative styles – black and white high contrast. HD Format recorded in slow motion (50 frames per second). Camera Sony A7R was stabilized by the gimbal and slaider. Working on the set lasted 10 hours. The author is Maciej Galas – author of articles on Sony A7R and Carl Zeiss lenses.

Fernando:Hi, I found this page where recommend Sony A7S to make photo of Milky Way.
they say: “Some of the best performers of the last couple of years have been the Sony A7R, Nikon D810 and the absolutely brilliant Sony A7S, which is known for its amazing low light capability.” http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-do-milky-way-photography-a-comprehensive-tutorial/

Hugh:Thought your readers might get a kick out of this very short short we did for a client, shot on a Sony a6000. What’s really interesting is that you can see in the gear list how big my cameras were before downsizing to my new favorite camera — it’s sitting on a honking Cartoni Focus tripod with fluid head!

Joe:I would like to share a wedding video that Jeffrey, my teammate, shot on 2 weeks ago.  He used 3 cameras, RX100m4, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and Canon XF300.  The majority footages are from RX100m4 with slow mode. https://youtu.be/U4gBa86R8C4

Je suis french…Je make you pay 1 million dollar for an E-mount adapter ;)

Share
FR_adapter

SAR reader Michel noticed that in his country the E-mount adapters are quite expensive :) The Tamron-NEX adapter is actually selling for 999.923 Euro or approximately $1,1 million on eBay (Click here). Must be a special adapter made by Gaultier or Yves Saint Laurent :)


P.S.: To all french readers, I seriously love France, part of my family lives there (Pyrénées-Orientales). So don’t mistake my making some fun on you for a sign of disrespect ;)
